This is the most wonderful business I have ever come across in my over 40 years in Hawaii. Totally honest, totally kind and understanding. A real delight to work with and who gave me everything I hoped for. I was suffering back ache and their help has totally freed me from it and I am on the road to recovery. This is to say nothing about the quality of their work, their fast and efficient service and the delight it has been in conversation with them. They lived up to every expectation I could possibly have had. I am more grateful than these words can express. Mahalo

We had our breakfast nook upholstered by Bob Arkus Upholstery. They did a fabulous job. John who helped us in the store and then came out measure and install was very professional and friendly. Highly recommend. We love our nook.

We had some counter stools with leather seats reupholstered. Not only did Bob do a fabulous job with the seats but hooked us up with a woodworker to refinish the wood and brass. When we got our counter stools back they looked brand new.

Exceptional attention to detail. The focal point of any fabric with pattern is to celebrate it by selecting one aspect of the design and letting it resonant repeatedly.
